THE WAR IN CHINA. Itidmras of the Etpfdilioray Force Id the Bay of Ta-lirn-wluu. NO PLAN OF OPERATIONS AS YET FIXED. PROGRES8 OF THE REBELS. iidreM of the 8haoghae Mer chants to Lord Elgin. A Vigorous Policy In the north Recommended. RBSIPATED HABITS BP THE EMPEROR. Bit Celestial Majesty Publicly Bebuked by the Censors, Ac., Ac., &c. |Troa u.c Sbangnas CfrwepunJccoe of lbs London Tins'* ] Sit anorak, July 5,1861). The whole British force bus reach,d the redez tons at Ta lien whan. No casualty whatever oc ?wrrrd among the large fleet of men-of-war and transports, rave that one of the latter, the Mer chant man, ran ashore in a fog and escaped without damage. The Centum-, which 1 reported to have grounded In the river through the carelessness of a pilot, (tot oft iu two days without injury. 1-et its hope tliut no long time will elapse before the com htaed expedition nails for th?Tl'?iho. The Manda rins have driven all flocks and herds into the inte rior, and no fresh meat, and few supplies, can be procured for the largo British force which only waits Use signal lor a lien, lip to tlus moment no blow has been struck, do blockate enforced, no hoatile measures taken against "the enemy," aioce the 26th of June, 1*61*. When me news of the disaster at the Takn forts first reached England it was felt that the intermit tent state of peace and war which had lasted since 1840 must cease, and for ever. Well did tbo L)uke, apropos of this very Chinese question, declare the topossibility of England's engaging in a little war. Begardlesa of his advice, our government waged one little war after another, tirst nibbling at one extremity and then at another of this enormous empire, subduing * Own or occupying an island, but never even attempting to reach tiro capital, nntil laird Elgin's "happy audacity" carried him to Tien tain in 1H6S. But the force whi ;h accom panied him was small, and made no impression on U>e old toiy party now ruling supreme at the seat i ?f government. They did not believe in our power, , Mia determined to disregard tho treaty and pre- 1 vent the English Ambassador's nrt i .nl at Pekin. > How they succeeded for the moment at the Taku j forts 1 ist year is matter of history. Various plans were suggested for bringing the Chinese Emperor to reason. In 1H42 Lord tJough sailed up the Vang tee, took Cliingkeang-foo, occu pied the Orand Canal, ent off the supplies of grain from Pekin, and advanced to Nankin, which he was about to assault. In order to save the ancient capital of Chins, and restore communication with the r>outh, the Imperial court came to term# and the treaty of Nankin was signed. Here was ft pre cedent to follow, a policy to pursue. That course which succeeded in IsiJ could never be wrong eighteen years later. Alas! the legislator who advocated this hopefnl scheme forgot that Nan kin has been in the possession of rebels sin* e lts6J, and that the occupation so anxiously contended for would be the greatest service we could render to the Emperor. Then nature baa anticipated us nt the Crand Canal. In 1861 the bellow river, which had long threatened this splendid monurm nt of Chinese -kill and perse verance, burst its embankments in the province of Shantung, aud destroyed tke canal for a consider able distance. This" disaster occurred some two hundred miles north of Nankin. The cnnsl has ?ever been repaired, and the enormous traffic be tween the Yong-tsc and Pekin is now transferred to the dangerous Yellow Se? and the treacherous tiulf of Pechele. So much for the precedent of 1842. Another -uggestion-supported I believe, by her Majesty's governments-was to divide China into two districts, north and south, the Yarg tae form ing the line of partition. In the southern division are all the ports at present opened to trade? Rhanghae. Ningpo, Foochow, Amor, Canton and Bwatow. Here it was proposed that business should be continuad as usual, while the north should be declared In a state of blockade. At first sight this ?cbenie s"ern? plai.-iMe enough, but it is open to , many, and, in my opinion, fatal objections. The i Imperial answer to the allies' ultimatum was not received nntil early in April, and no blockade conld have been eflected before the end of that month. By that time nearly the whole of the grain junks from the sontk had artived In the Peibo. and the supply of corn for the year was secured at Pekin. True it is that after that period enormous quantities of rice and other produce are sent to the capital from bhanghac and Ningpo. The Shanghac Chamber of Commerce reported to Mr. Bruce that thia trade afforded employment for no less than 3.000 to 4,000 junks, manned by 100,000 sailers, the capital invested in it being apwards of ?7,000,000 Stirling. All tkesa junks aud all this capital belong to inhabitants of this very southern district which It was tbcnylit desirable to spare, and tho MM,000 sailors form part of the population with Which we wish to trade and whom we are to cou- der as our vi ry good friends. They would have been utterly ruin ed by a lengthened blockade, and tn^ht have enased serious disturbances nt aix ports. Again, though we hare hitherto had trading re late '.'"O.OMi.'siO of human bciugswlr, inhabit the northern division of Ciena, the treaty of Tientsin opens two ports in the district, and be fore long we may hope to till this enormous field which has so long lain fallow and which offers such A prospect for merchant and niau'ifkettircr.

This policy may be de scribed un peueeftilly agprensive. Before many months aie over the Amour will he conuected with PeteiNhurg by telegraph, and the southern t?or uon of Siberia has lately received an important ex I t? usioij at the expense of China. Bosnia baa gained her successes by diplomacy, a science in which her utents are fecond to none. They are not the men to make the blunder imputed to them. In truth he KuaaiJii bugbear has been held up long enough before the English public. Constantinople is safe. Kussia m f mancipating her serfs and constrneting i mi railways. There is every reason why we should bo as good trends .is of old. The Chinese have succeeded in raisin* the Cor morant, sunk in the Peiho. They built a boat into which they transferred the Cormorant's en gines. But, alas! they would not work, and no one could set them going, rto Sang bo lin sin sent down four watchmakers from IVkin. "You are accustomed to machine*," said he; "set that bar barian machine to work, or I will cut off'your heads.'' The unhappy watchmaker* succeeded in lighting the tires and inducing the smoke to ascend through the tunnel. This seems to have contented their taskmaster, fcr, thongh the engine* are not w01 king, we have 110 account of the watchmakers' decapitation. 77,? E?,jteror ia in n state of drunken, fwlpUm imbecility. Among the many curious institution* ol ( liiua. that of tin Censorate is entitled to a high place. The Censors are intruded with "the care of manners snd customs, the investigation of ali public offices within and withont the capital, the discrimination be'ween the good and had perform once of their business, and between the depravity ai d npiightnees of the officer* employed in them/' Tin se officer* exercise the right ot reproof with extraordinary candor and plainness, though it is to be leartd that their remonstrsuces are frequently unavailing. Some month* ?? the Censor protested (Igain*{ the conduct of the Emperor, against his <ti Miketmtsa and dissipation, his attach,xent to tutors, and love of line society. This reproof to Majesty <eas published in the I', kin Gazette ?,?( circulated throughout the length and breadth of the empire. Shortly before hi* {degradation, iio ktvei tsing, late Coventor Ceneral of thi* province in conjunction wi'h Wang-vn-liiig. addressed a long niemot in) to the Emperor. They described in piteous terms the state of the district, with the regular U-oups tM- handed, the rebels victorious oa every side, and Shaughae oniy preserved from as-iiult by tbe presence of the allied forces. They then discussed the dispute between England and C hina with considerable freedom, and in a manner which might have convinced Mr. Bright that there are two sides to thi* Chinese question. Hang-ho lin-sin they denounce, a* "only thinking ol de fence, and not vernal in the history ol negotiations of peace. AVhlle the commerce of Chin t with the fortiguer is a source of advantage to both parties, these quatr-U mo on the contrary, a source of dis content to both. That the foreigner ha* no deep feeling* of hostility i* evinced by his affording troops to protect the city." They describe the trade as ruined, the Customs' revenuo not forthcoming, and the local banditti "roaming through the coun try eager to try con. lnsions." The only resource they have to suggest is in negotiation of peace with out loss of time, so the English and French may utterly out away hostile feeling. They would then probably lend their troops, with whose aid the empire might be relieved from danger. This ud drevs was forwarded ou the l.'i h of June, since which poor Ho has been disgraced and remains at Slianghae a prisoner and in chain.*, awaiting the ar rival of hi* -nceessor, who will send him to Pekin. There 1- no chance of this remonstrance being heeded. It requires blows, uot words, to hammer conviction into the heads of the Pcliiu Cabinet. The rebels are making steady progress In this province. Indeed, there is no authority to oppose tlnm. 7 hey have taken the walled city of Tsing poo, on the bank* of the rtter, about thirty miles from Shangbae. Both Imperialist* and rebel* ra vage and pillage the country in every direction; but they will stay their hand* before they reach hhanghae. The European* are too strong for them, and there is an armed force of some 7,000 men available for the defence of the settlement, independent'}- of the Furions and one or two gun boats. Ihe merchant* of Fharghac yesterday presented Lord Elgin with an address, signed by all the lead ing lirms in the place. Nothing can be more tm stilish than thu sentiment* expressed?nothing more disinterested than the courno recommended. If i* clear tha^the interests of these gentle ruc-i are identified with peace, but they aee Uiat peace can only bo secured by vigorous action in tbe north. Their addrcsa is as fallows:?

The ditu of June was the anniversary of the disaster at tho ( T?Ku Forts la-t year, and both Admiral and dene- j ral would gladly have been before them again on , that day. But they could not ud .ance without our I Allies, and the French were not prepar I.

Their men are doing all in tlieir power to mnko up lor lost time, but the end <0 the month will arrive before they are inn sedition to atari, and thoy will tako the" ticbl with ^ ranch smaller fi.r-o than was anticipated. They brought out no artillery horse*, and the ponied puichuacd In Japan and Manilla have never seen a gun.

But the con-cqutncea of delay may be so serious, and the larU are ao unquestionable, that i should tail in niyduly did I omit to state them. This Lay was intended as a rendezvon* only. It was never imagined that the troops would discm baik. When Hir Hope Grant saw we should bo kept back for some weeks he determined at once to get the men and horses out of Lhe abips, and put the nun under canvaas. This was accordingly done, and the whole force?horse, foot and artil lerv?is now encamped on either side of the bay. The effective force of tki* army ton i?U of 6,347 Biitish and 2,176 native infantry, 1,012 cavalry, 1,1"3 artillery, 4to engineers and 2S8 military train?making a total of 12,111 men. There are two batteries of Armstrong guns (12 pounders), three batteries (lb pounder*), two and a half Madras monnt iin train batteries and a siege trsin, consist ing of light 32 pounders and h inch UuwitAcrs; l,6?n horses ate in camp, besides a number ol ponies and bullocks. The first division is encamped on the west, the Ffcond division, and the artillery, cavalry and land transport on the east side of the harbor, looking over the hilto which surround Uie bay, you can hard'v believe that this is the furthest raat. Appro/ibing from the sea, the roeks rise high and precipitous, mu h like the ditto ol J-nsli water. Ascending the bay the hills recede from the water. be< one terraced, and bear a striking resemblance to old friends on the west coast of Kcolland?Mull, lor inxtauce. Hand and shingle form the beach on the wrstern side. Between It and the hilla ia a large platean, varying In width from two milea to ton. Mount the height, and undulating slopes meet your eye, scantily covered with short sweet grass and'wild thyme. The very piaro for a sheep walk," eriica a friend of no small experience.

Moat stringent order* have been issued by the Ad miral and general against looting or annoying the people. There orders have been well carried out, and .-applies a>e oom-equeiiiiy brought freely into ramp. Yesterday afternoon two manderiiiH arrived from Tiug-ehow, a walled city UurU'i 11 mil' s hence, and chin chinned <?en. Crofton. They brought sheep, eggs, fowls, and tea. General Croft on received ihem most gra ciously, tried to dispel tlreir friars, and gave liieio a bottle of sherry and another of brandy. They admired the wine glusse* so much that they woro added to the gift, and they went away rejoicing. Excellent springs of water have be n found in Odiu'a bay. The place is so safe snd convenient, so near the l'eiho and the scene ot future opera tions. that the navnl and military authorities liavo determined on making Ta-lien-whan a depot for stores, provisions and munitions of war during the expedition. The engineers are erecting two small 1 forts to command the landing, and a battery of aitillery, with some infantry, will remain behind in charge whtfri we sail tor the l'eiho. No plan of operations has yet been settled. Hir < Hope Grunt went to t hefow on Tuesday, and re- i turned yesterday. The French Admiral and General ' are expected to-morrow, and we hope they may be able to fix a day by which they will he pre pared. This much, however, seems certain the French will land to the south, the English to the north of the Tnku forts. The pluco selected by us is 1'oli-tung. about eight miles Irotn the l'eiho, and nt the mouth of the liver which Mr. Ward, the American Ambassador, ascended on his late journey to I'ekin. A naval brigade will prohubly be formed from tlic blue jackets and the murines, which w ill act with the army, and while the troops attack the forts in the rear, the gunboats will tackle tin m in front. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. ? I Fjudat, Sept. 28 -t? 1'. M. | The money market is generally easier to day i than yesterday, though it is hardly possible to j quote any change in rates. The brokers arc ge- ; nerally paying seven per cent, and the best papor over sixty days does not go under seven. AttiJ very choice short bills are readily passed. There j is no complaint in any quirter of a wanto' mo ney, though the wants of the West prevent the 1 demand falling so far below the supply as to cans* j a decline in the rate of interest. Money continues to arrive from the South and from the near by i States. Some money is coming from England 1 likewise, for investment in the Erie and other rail- | way stocks.^ Foreign exchange continue? dull. The leading bankers continue to o<k 10t>4 for sterling and 5.134 for francs, but very excellent bills may be had be- ' low these rates, and the demand is quite light. ' The stcauicia tomorrow will take ont something over half a million in specie, part of which will ! be in silver. The business at the Ptock Exchange to day waa very large indeed, but the tendency of prices waa downward. The large advance of the pa^t week in New York Central and one or two other stocks lias tempted holders to sell out, and the quantity of Central, especially, now on the market is so large that speculators look for a c onsiderable de cline, notwithstanding the large earnings. The Western stocks are depressed, on the other hand, partly in consequence of the apparent diminution in tiaffic.and partly through the manoeuvres of parties who are operating for the decline. It wa? thus reported at one time to-day that the Rock Island directors proposed to p?es the October di vidend. What prospect tin-re may be of this may be gathered from the following statement of the financial condition of the company, which appear ed in a tranapo?td aud unintelligible shape in this morning's IIsiuLr:?
